Report: ​Job Vacancies, 2013

Amid the tight labour market, job vacancies rose over the year. The share of vacancies unfilled for extended periods and hard to fill by locals held steady in 2013. Reflecting the concentration of lower-end occupations, key barriers to recruiting locals for hard-to-fill vacancies include unattractive pay, physically strenuous job, non-conducive working environment and shift work.

This latest annual report analyses data on hiring demand and job vacancy characteristics in 2013, including occupations in demand, top-hiring industries, required qualifications and working experience. It also identifies openings that are vacant for extended periods and those employers reported are hard to fill by locals.
